Upon an immense stretch of flat ground at the mouth of a river bathed in sunlight rises Hyperpolis.
It stands there, surrounded by its four asphalt car-parks, to condemn us - a huge enveloping supermarket.
Each of us will see ourselves reflected in the characters who move mindlessly about Hyperpolis, but The Giants is a call to rebellion.
This bold and inventive novel is the work of a tremendously talented writer and both an intoxicating and exhilarating read.
